CRUTCHES - A long stick with a crosspiece at the top, used as a support under the armpit by a lame person...... I found crutches painful (but then turned out I had injured my wrist at the same time which made using crutches hard work!)
CT SCAN -A Computerised Tomography uses a computer that takes data from several x-ray images of structures inside a human's body and converts them into pictures on a monitor..... This isn't always perfomed for a LF but if you need an operation it helps the surgeon get a much better picture of the damage in preparation for surgery. This machine I didn't mind :)
CAST - A bandage stiffened with Plaster of Paris, moulded to the shape of a limb that is broken and used to support and protect it: 'I had to spend a month in a cast'
